• Number '002' of only 200 made
• Hand-built race replica
• 2,091 kilometres recorded
• Requires re-commissioning

With its all-new range of water-cooled, eight-valve twins just over the horizon, Ducati capitalised on the success of its existing 750 F1 model by releasing a series of hand-built, limited edition race replicas: Montjuich, Santamonica, and Laguna Seca, the former celebrating the Italian manufacturer's many endurance racing victories at the eponymous circuit in Spanish city of Barcelona. One of the most exotic models ever offered by Ducati, the Montjuich came with an extensively revised engine featuring different crankcases, a strengthened gearbox, larger inlet ports, 'hotter' cams, bigger carburettors, Kokusan ignition, and an extremely loud Verlicchi competition exhaust system.

The suitably up-rated running gear included an aluminium swinging arm; composite Marvic/Akront 16" magnesium/aluminium wheels; adjustable Marzocchi shock absorber; Brembo four-piston front brake callipers; and a fully floating disc at the rear, all of which made the Montjuich a far better sports motorcycle than the F1 it was based on. Only 200 were made - all in 1986 - with a mere 20 allocated to the United States market, and each came with a numbered plaque on the aluminium fuel tank. The Montjuich was one of the most exclusive motorcycles of its time and today is highly prized by Ducati collectors.

Number '002' of the series, this Montjuich displays a total of 2,091 kilometres on the odometer. Offered from a private collection, the machine will require re-commissioning before returning to the road, and would benefit from detailing. The bodywork appears to be in generally good condition, though there is corrosion to the wheels and damage to the front indicators, while the rear indicators are missing. Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves with regard to this motorcycle's originality, correctness, and mechanical condition prior to bidding. There are no documents with this Lot, which is sold strictly as viewed. A possibly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the discerning Ducati collector.
